Quora rival Wacom has brought out eight pressure-sensitive plug-ins which work with such as Photoshop, Painter, Corel PhotoPaint and others – and of course the Wacom tilt and pressure sensitive pen. PenTools include Noise, Despeckler, Virtual Airbrush, Dust and Scratches, Super Putty, Metal Leafer, 3D Chisel and Bit Blaster.

PenTools will ship with new Wacom pads after August but you can download them free from www.wacom.de. [possible pic here]
